Do You Have A Legit Home Defense Plan?




There is a lot of debate on what makes a home defense plan perfect.  The truth is that there is no such thing.  All you can do is try your best to imagine all possible threats and do something about them.  For example, if you know that your back door lock does not work properly, then maybe you should replace it with a new one.  We’re not trying to be sarcastic, just looking out for you.  The following are tips that you should take into consideration to improve your home defense plan:

1.     Learn how to fight.
This doesn’t mean learn how to fight then go bully people.  The goal is to avoid dangerous situations but if you are confronted with a violent individual then it would be nice to know that you can fight.  Knowing how to maintain the upper-hand in a physically violent scenario can mean your life.

2.     Get a guard dog. 
Dogs are excellent at alerting home owners to intruders.  It is a good idea to get a large dog because they can actually help you in case you need it.  Get yourself a good guard dog like a Doberman Pinscher or a German Shepherd.  Both are highly trainable and will have your back.

3.     Buy a weapon.
Don’t just buy any weapon, make sure you get what fits your situation and most importantly, learn how to use it! What good is it if you buy a gun and don’t even know how to take the safety off? If you choose to buy a firearm, practice with it by going target shooting. 

     4.    Reinforce your doors and windows. 
     This one seems like an obvious tip but you would be surprised how many people fail to properly reinforce their doors and windows.  For example, if you have windows or doors that slide sideways, add an extra layer of protection by simply placing a stick in the track. If an intruder gets past the lock, they still would not be able to slide it open.     

5.     Install a security system.
It would give you peace of mind to know that an alarm system would alert you if an intruder was in your house.  Getting cameras and making sure that they actually work would also be a plus.  If you have an alarm system that alerts an outside company, make sure to only give your security password to those you trust with your life.

6.     Build a safe room.
Last but not least, if you have the resources and time, build a safe room inside your house for you and your family.  Make sure that you stock up with food, water and supplies in case you have to bug in.  Not every situation calls for you to bug out.  Sometimes the safest course of action would be to stay indoors and build a good defense.

5 Scary SHTF Scenarios!



When you read through these, actually imagine yourself being stuck in that situation.  It would totally suck.  There is nothing cool about the following scenarios except for the fact that you may have to use some badass weapons.  If only you had an Alien Blaster right? Seriously though, if you were to experience one of these situations, and survived, you would most likely be diagnosed with going crazy because they are absolutely scary!

Martial Law
This happens in all parts of the world and lately it has been taking place a lot more than ever. The post 9/11 world is all about security and it seems like law enforcement and the military can be a bigger threat to our rights than we previously thought. Local police departments are becoming more militarized so we have to be a lot more cautious about that. But law enforcement and military personnel are people too. So now we have to decide...on which side are we on? Or is it possible to remain neutral? We respect the social contract between citizen and government, including the 2nd Amendment...but maybe being on the NRA membership roster isn’t the best idea though eh?

Nuclear War
Some argue that the Cold War has never really been over.  The threat has always been there regardless of what governments have said.  At some point in the past there was a major push towards nuclear disarmament but regardless of those efforts, nuclear weapons are still being developed. There are even more countries now that have access to them.  Let’s hope that one of these ruthless regimes don’t get too playful with a nuclear warhead.  Can anyone say North Korea? 

Artificial Intelligence
Remember "The Terminator"? This situation would definitely suck.  The machines that once helped humanity reach a higher standard of living can eventually be the death of us.  In addition to that, imagine Siri wanting to be your girlfriend? Scary.  That didn’t stop Joaquin Phoenix in the movie “Her” though…then again it was Scarlett Johansson’s voice…

Zombie Apocalypse
Seeing a dead body can already be a traumatizing site…but seeing a dead body re-animate would be an incredibly horrific site! Many people now argue that this is totally in the realm of becoming a possible situation because of scientists messing with genes and viruses.  The scientific community is also warning that bacteria are becoming more resistant to our current arsenal of antibiotics.  Maybe we are slowly mutating into zombies…and one day, it is going to explode.

Alien Invasion
This is in our opinion a very scary scenario.  Aside from the walking dead, unfriendly aliens is an extremely frightening thought.  Think about it, these beings probably will look creepy to begin with and they would definitely have the ability to destroy us…easily.  They would be so technologically advanced it would be almost impossible to match their power.  That is unless they die on their own from some bacteria that humanity is immune to or water is like acid to them like in the movie "Signs".  The point is that we would rather not ever meet an alien unless it was a sexy shapeshifter.

So there you go folks.  You have just read our list of 5 scary as hell SHTF scenarios that would be a total bummer if you were stuck in one.  Let’s hope you never have to experience any of the above.  But if you do, remember this list and don’t say you weren’t warned.
